... by some guys who should know. This a great article with the opinions of Al Mithcell (coach of David Reid and the US olympic team) Emmanuel Steward and Joe Fraizer about the decline of modern American heavyweights: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/boxing/5253384.stm

You heard the name hear first kids, Isaiah Thomas.

my grandfather was a proffessional boxer. my father was on the boxing team at his catholic high school. the school i went to as a child didn't offer any combative sports and i took karate outside of school, but most kids just did the sports offered. so it seems there's support issues. also good athletes go where the free education and the cash is. football, basketball. at least around where i live.
